Shure KSM44 Common Applications
The KSM44/SL is designed as a premium vocal microphone for studio recording. Microphone use, however, is a matter of personal taste. Here is a non-exhaustive list of common applications:
  • Vocals -- solo, background, voice-over
  • Acoustic instruments -- such as piano, guitar, drums, percussion, strings
  • Wind instruments -- brass and woodwind
  • Low frequency instruments -- such as double bass, electric bass, kick drum
  • Overhead miking -- drums or percussion
  • Ensembles -- choral or orchestral Room ambiance pick-up -- guitar amplifier or drums

Both the acoustic environment and microphone placement have significant effects on the sound obtained when miking any sound source. Shure encourage users to experiment with these variables to achieve the best overall sound.

Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Very easy to use. If a mic can be ergonomically designed, this is it.
Sound
How is the tone?
Wonderful mid-forward tone in cardiod. Excels at vocal..no harsh top -end. On the brighter side in Ricardo, but when Shure say this is a professional studio mic, they mean it. This mic makes my voice sound the way I imagined it is supposed to, but slightly better. Not a 'WOW' mic but an 'A-HA' mic.
General
Your general opinion of this product.
No one mic is for every voice. This is a less colored mic, that is also designed as a professional tool.It does not get in the way of you or your performance. It will give you back what you put into it, but slightly more flattering.
